Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care is the only Hospice care service for terminally ill adults and their families in West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care provides supportive and end of life care for those living with a terminal illness (such as cancer, heart, lung or neurological disease) and every day supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers - in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford. It offers a mix of medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support. However, as the NHS/Government only covers 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £20,000 a day to be able to offer all of its services, free of charge, to its patients and their families. It therefore relies heavily on the support and generosity of the local community.

The Hospice care charity is named after local mother, Phyllis Tuckwell, who died from cancer in 1970. The Hospice opened its doors in 1979 following a lengthy campaign to create a modern hospice and provide greater choice for terminally ill patients. The high profile committee launched a public appeal to raise the funds needed to found the Hospice.
